Winter conditions vary across a range of temperatures and precipitation, but in all cases communities must find ways to provide safe, accessible conditions for winter cycling and walking while balancing competing priorities. This webinar offers examples of policies and practices that are used to ensure timely snow removal from sidewalks, pathways, bike lanes and cycle tracks.This is a 90-minute webinar.

Presenters in this session will discuss:

· On overview of different types of winter climates and how facilities and maintenance should be adapted to local climate

· Different policy approaches to snow removal from sidewalks

· The importance of prioritization and predictability of snow removal in encouraging winter cycling

· A pilot program to determine operation and funding requirements to achieve improved snow clearing and street sweeping along on-street bike routes.
